How much did you gain during pregnancy? And how long did it take you to lose the baby weight?

I had my son 2 months ago and initially lost like 2o lbs! Now im stuck....i was 170 when i delivered him (biggest i've ever been in my life!) and now im at 150 and just can't seem to lose weight. Its not like I eat a lot, but I dont really have time to work out now that my little guy is here so i dont know what to do! My pre-preg weight was 125-130. I dont think i'll ever see those numbers again. Maybe if I starve.....

  • try apple cider vinegar, it worked for me, make sure it's organic, 2 teaspoons 3 times a day 30 mins BEFORE each meal, I've lost my baby weight doing this, and it gives me energy

  • Not working out is really not an option if you want to lose weight. You've got to find time. Encorporate play time and working out with each other. Go to the park, dance around for 30 minutes and laugh and play. Wake up 30 minutes before baby wakes up.Or do it while he's napping. You do what you have to do if you really want to lose it.

  • Eat more fruits/veggies and lean meats/fish

    Eat 6 small meals a day rather than 3 big meals.

    Eat low-fat dairy products. (Yogurt and low-fat milk)

    And if you do some kind of exercise, it's actually better to build muscle rather than doing cardio.
    Muscle burns calories, so you'll actually lose weight faster if you focus on building muscle, rather than burning fat.
